I would like to know about changing some security settings in about:config.

Right now in about:config the line [security.OCSP.require;false], and line[services.sync.prefs.sync.security.OCSP.require;false] are set to false.

Would I have better browser security if these two line were set to 'true'?

Are there other security changes I could make in about:config that would result in better security.

Hello, the security.OCSP.require to false(the default) means that the OCSP it is not forced. check the security.OCSP.enabled it is 1 (active, enabled) (0, zero, is disabled).

if you force the security.OCSP.require (toggle to true) then probably you will have lags and stuck in the browser because if the ocsp service of a site is down, then the browser will hang.

the services.sync.prefs.sync.security.OCSP.require it is true by deafult.
